|~ BTD6 description|
Laser Blasts is the Tier 1 upgrade of Path 1 for the Super Monkey in Bloons TD 6. Just like the old Laser Vision upgrade from earlier games and BTD5's Laser Blasts, BTD6's Laser Blasts makes the Super Monkey shoot lasers instead of darts, but neither this upgrade nor its successor Plasma Blasts upgrade can pop Purple Bloons without special upgrades. As with earlier versions, this upgrade adds +1 pierce to every shot and allows popping of Frozen Bloons but still not Lead Bloons, because the damage type changes from sharp to energy, not plasma.
Laser Blasts adds a pair of laser goggles, covering the whole of Super Monkey's eyes. The Super Monkey appears somewhat angry in its portrait.
Laser Blasts grants the Super Monkey +1 pierce and Energy type attacks, allowing for Frozen, but not Purple popping.
Laser Blasts increases the pierce of the Super Monkey by 1, essentially doubling its popping power compared to not having any upgrades, and allows it to pop Frozen Bloons. However, the cost-efficiency of Super Range at providing both range and pierce often renders the lone Laser Blasts upgrade less useful, with the only exception being if planning to further upgrade to Plasma Blasts or wanting to add a crosspath with Knockback.
- Extra pierce is good for the Super Monkey, but do not stop at Laser Blasts. Go for Plasma Blasts as soon as possible, though Laser Blasts is a rather decent stepping stone towards that upgrade.
- If there are Purples, be cautious about it. Add anti-Purple support like Bloonjitsu or Alchemists.
- Like BTD5, the Laser Blasts upgrade costs the same as the base tower. This is not the case in BTD4.
